Portugal 2012: Kodak Portra 400, Roll #2

“Street Suave” – Lisbon, Portugal

Here is the second roll from my recent trip to Portugal, and the second post of this roll will be tomorrow. Shot, once again, with Kodak’s lovely Portra film! I find that the combination of Portra and my Nokton 40/1.4 is quite a good combination for street shooting, actually. The film is very forgiving, and the lens is very small, yet also very well done. Portugal was lovely, as I have said before…looking through these shots makes me want to go back already ๐Ÿ™‚

I am in the process of re-working this blog. I have been thinking about it lately, and there will be some changes coming. First, I don’t think I will be posting each and every day anymore. I am going to try to focus more on longer-term projects, and I will only be able to post about them once I am a ways into them and they are really progressing. ย Second, the blog will be more word-based at times, and not totally photo-centered any longer; that means that if projects are still in development that I will still blog, but may add more words about the things I am working on and the way my photography is moving. One of the things that I enjoy about shooting film–and I have posted on this before–is the fact that film forces me to wait. I can’t simply upload that day’s snapshots; I have to get film processed and let the photos sit for a while.

This is all still in the beginning stages, so there won’t be any major changes overnight. However, I am moving that direction. On another note, I have been shooting a lot of medium format (I got a Hasselblad!) lately, so expect to see a post about that in the upcoming days and weeks as well! Finally, I am trying out a new place to get my photos processed, and I will post about my experiences with them, and others, as I try to find a really good place to handle my film. It’s harder than you might think!



  1. “Street Portrait” is great. The colors work really well in this shot and it is awesome that this man was nice enough to just pose for you ๐Ÿ™‚ I also like the reflection in “Living Room.” It’s an interesting perspective twist.
